Re: Freedom vs. Time-based process thread


There are very good reasons not to "choose freedom".  OpenStack is a platform for many other things -- Rackspace's production deployment, Nebula and its production deployments, Ubuntu's releases, Citrix's products, and hopefully plenty of others to come.  All these people will have schedules dependent upon the OpenStack one (I wrote our 6-month schedule today, in fact).

As long as OpenStack has time-based releases, it's much easier for everyone to plan around it.  Start moving the releases to accommodate one pet feature or another, and things will get inconvenient for everyone.

Subject: [Openstack] Freedom vs. Time-based process thread

I'm not sure if this is the proper list referred to in the last #openstack-meeting I missed, but I am interested in the outcome of the "Freedom vs. Time-based process thread" referred to there. And, when you put it that way, who wouldn't choose FREEDOM!? :) I don't really think it will change how I work much, but it would affect how and when my work gets released and usable.
